Freshly Made Sketches: Hello Sweet Friend

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by the wonderful Cindy Hall.  It's such a simple sketch but it's going to stay at the front of my inspiration files because I love the results!


I was paging through my never-before-used-schtuff the other day and saw that the WPlus9 stamp set Hello Again was still unused.  When I saw the sketch, I knew that I wanted the big "hello" die across the small panel. Then I was a little stumped - I seem to have the stamp set but not the coordinating "hello" die.  I do have a "hello" die from Mama Elephant that looks almost the same.  I'm wondering if, at one point, I decided not to order the WPlus9 die because I already had one just like it.  That really doesn't sound like me!!  Because it's really bothering me today that I have a mismatch on my card.  (Sad, huh?! Because none of you would have noticed had I not mentioned it!)

Hello Sweet Friend

This has already gone out to a wonderful friend who went on a walk with me last week and let me dump on her for over an hour.  I don't think she got a word in edgewise.  It was cathartic for me, although I'm sure her head was spinning, and I wanted to thank her for being a sweet friend!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Freshly Made Sketches design team.  That's another group of sweet friends.  There's a very active Facebook group for the team and it really is amazing how we all help each other out even though most of us have never met!

SUPPLY LIST

I have linked the original set of MFT Fishtail Flag dies.  There's also a layering set and I never know exactly which dies I am using!

No "mismatch' at all...just a gorgeous card made by one fabulous friend to give to another fabulous friend! She'll adore it, as do I...and I know she doesn't mind walking/talking and caring whenever you need her.
